Hi. Reyno Benjamin with expertvillage.com.
I’m going to talk a little bit about face off. When the referee drops the puck, the
trick to winning the face off is you got both players’ sticks facing each other getting
ready to drop the puck, is to watch the referee’s hand. He drops it; you can either try to pick
it out of air or as soon as it hits you wanna hit it back towards your team, so you can
have control of the puck. So watch the hand when he drops it. Puck drops, you want to
snap it back before he gets it. So he drops the puck, and I want to bring it back to my
players so they can control of it. Once they can control they can watch where they are
going. The trick to this is watch the hand of the referee go down. Picking up the puck
snapping it back. You are going to take it back. Usually most people want here hand right
so when you guide it you drop it this way. You want to brought back to your players.
Some people have there hands here a lot people have them here. I lot of pro have there hand
here facing this way. So when you are down here you drop the puck. You want to take it
here and you want to bring it back so your team has control of it. First thing watch
where the hand of the ref is. You can pick it out of air or you let it hit. You want
to be the first guy to push it back to your team. The team has control, they can go down
the ice.

    True to a certain extent, although if you understand why certain players use certain techniques you can make a more informed decision as to which method you want to use yourself. For example, turning the lower hand around puts your arm in a more natural pulling position, lining up the muscles and tendons to draw the puck bacwards quicker between the legs. Of course you've got to get to the puck first and dependant on where you want to put it is how you will position your mitt.

    I doubt even NHL players can call themselves experts enough to actually instruct how to play the game

    Expert Villiage you have done it again. Poison little kids minds with nonsense. Stay with making your other vids. Never anything that has to deal with hockey. If you "experts" had the guts you would delete all your video's. If you don't get of youtube and of planet earth I will get some one to put a virus on your channel page.
